    Life is good!!  These pictures brightened my day so much!!

    Hey Lindsey,

     

    I can't stop looking at your photos (& taking notes Lol)! Did you have colored up-lighting for your reception? I love the way the blue and green illuminates the entire Seaside Grill restaurant. Also, how much did you pay for your centerpieces? I wanted to do something similar with our centerpieces (but have 3 vases instead of 1) but Lorena said orchids aren't included and she will have to get back to me with a quote =/. I hope its not a ridiculous amount.

     

    PS

    I think I am really considering having our reception at Seaside now :)

     

    Here is what I am thinking for our centerpiece.

      Here is a link to the dress code policy of the resort and restuarants on the resort property.  The only place you can really get away with shorts and flip flops is the buffett and maybe a couple others.

       

       

      Below is a link for clarification of the dress code policy (all restaurants are either Casual Elegance or Casual):

        The rehearsal dinner is necessary to review the availability close to the date, because is subject to the occupancy of the resort, if you want it private, is not a problem but when the people want it in a restaurant, we need to wait.

         

        I am planning an All-White dinner, where I will be distributing our OOT bags and welcome brochures, so the dinner is a very important aspect in our DW. Has anyone had any issues with reserving a restaurant for your rehearsal/welcome dinner? Is this their "policy" or are they just trying to nickle-and-dime for everything?

         

        P.S.

        When did you all receive your first invoice???

        If you read the wedding guide it says in order to reserve a spot for your group and more or less be "guaranteed" to sit together and all get into the restaurant its $15 pp + tax and gratuity.  That is the policy unfortunately.  So, I would say if this is a big aspect for you than definitely reserve something and don't go on a whim and hope your group can all get into the restaurant, especially if you are going at a busy travel time.

            Here is what I am thinking for our centerpiece.

            Hmm.. I showed Lorena a similar picture for ours and she made it happen.  She credited us for the flowers we didn't use that were included [I brought down our bouquets and stuff]  If I had to guess, because I don't have the invoice anymore, I would say we paid around $600 for 8 centerpieces.  I am not 100% certain though.

             

            I am so glad you love our photos!  We do too!!!

             

            I blue, green, and white lanterns going all the way around the SG.  It was beautiful!!!

               Your Pictures are amazing. Did they provide the center piece vases for you or did you bring them yourself? I cannot decide on what to do for my centerpeices. Whether I should bring my own vases and candles or if they will provide them for me. suggestions?

                Thank you!!  In my experience bringing too much down is a big pain in my butt!!  :)  I recommend letting them provide it if budget allows.  They provided all of it and it was beautiful!

                  I intended on paying the $15/pp. However, Lorena is saying that even that is not guaranteed a space in a restaurant. Its either I shut down the entire restaurant for our group (and pay I believe $30/pp+) or wait and see if they will allow me to have a space in the restaurant.

                       That's what I was thinking. Did they provide you with table number holders or would I need to bring them? We are having a little over 100 people and I'm not sure if they have them or enough. Your posts are so helpful!
